Brownfield Villa Gavotti

Short Overview

Stable built as a holiday home by the Marquis Nicolò Gavotti around the sixteenth century. The building was originally composed by a rectangular block measuring 32 x 12 m, with the largest side overlooking the square and the stairwell leaning against the prospectus overlooking the garden.

During the 18th century, a small lateral part facing the church was added.

Between 1887 and 1980 the building welcomed the Augustinian cloistered nuns. For this reason, the interiors were modified to adapt the building to the needs of the cloister.

The transformation involved the large atrium on the ground floor, which became a chapel open to public worship. Also, on the ground floor, a refectory and speakers were set up. These works can be traced back to the early 1900s. The building is divided into three floors and an attic as well as a mezzanine located between the ground floor and the main floor, with tax quotas sometimes different on the same floor. Adjacent to the north elevation there is a large land once used as a garden. Since 1980 the building has been unused and closed to the public.
